Tips For The Preparation

For a change, you can also coat the spice cookies with a chocolate glaze. To do this, let the couverture melt in a water bath and then brush the pastries with a pastry brush. Instead of red wine, you can also add a dash of rum. However, then you need to adjust the amount of milk. The spice cookies also taste amazing when you spread jam over them.

General Information Of The Recipe

The spice cookies are also ideal for freezing. Just put them in the freezer and enjoy them anytime you want. It is best to store them in a tin can. The longer they are stored, the more intense the taste, as this is where the spices develop.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get the whole cake from the tray?

Simply take a second baking sheet and cover it with baking paper. Then place this on the sheet and turn both sheets over once. Remove the upper tray and pull down the baked-on baking paper in one piece.

Do you have to beat the egg white extra frothy beforehand?

No, you don’t have to. It’s just that beating them beforehand makes the dough loser and higher.

What can you use as an alternative to milk?

You can also use almond milk or another vegan milk alternative. They’re all great.
